Ladies Watching the Show



Urgent information -there have been reports of letters being delivered to residents in the Hambleton area which claim to have been sent by Hambleton District Council.  The letters are regarding waste disposal collection and are absolutely bogus and are NOT from Hambleton District Council.  The scam works by having residents leave our their refuse for collection, the refuse is collected, what is of use is kept by the bogus collectors and the rest of the refuse is fly tipped locally.  NYP ask that you do not co-operate with these people and that you report any suspicious behaviour on the 101 number or in an emergency via the 999 system.


Village Hall Chairman
The Village Hall has a new Chairman!  Katherine Lart has agreed to Chair the Village Hall Committee for the next two years.  She can be contacted on 881456.
